As the pandemic crisis continues, very different visions of our world are unfolding. In one scenario, we see increased authoritarianism, corporate control, competition over resources and the decimation of vulnerable communities. In another scenario, we see the emergence of an inclusive democracy, a regenerative economy, increased interdependence and the opportunity for all communities to thrive.
Which vision of the world will you fight for and invest in?
Another World is Possible Fund is a vehicle to invest in the social justice organizations who are fighting for both a just response to COVID-19 in the short-term AND a visionary future for our world in the long-term. Our goal is to raise a minimum of $250,000 from individual donors to give out in immediate, general operating grants to organizations affiliated with Transformative Leadership for Change and Chinook Fund. Recognizing this hour of urgent need, Chinook Fund seeded the fund with $75,000 from its operating reserves. With an additional $10,000 contributed by AJL Foundation, we have $85,000 of committed funding to start distributing. In addition to grants, we hope to raise money to offer quality coaching and strategic planning to those receiving funds. Numerous leaders have requested help to stay open, “recession-proof” their organizations, adapt their work to new conditions – and more.
Together, we have a shared network of 75 organizations who will be eligible for these funds. This includes groups such as: 9to5 Colorado, Colorado People’s Alliance, Front Line Farming, Hispanic Affairs Project, Padres y Jóvenes Unidos, and Pine River Shares.
